I'm not normally into the loot grab, unless it's Diablo 2 or, in this case, Borderlands 2. I've put 400 hours into this game and though I be be close to done with it at this point, it was an amazing experience. To get the most our of this game, you need to play it with friends, as trading loot with friends makes the trading element a lot more addictive. Certain combat moments can become truly memorable. Most of the expansion packs were truly worthy additions, as well.

For single-player this is a big improvement over the previous game. In the first game the storyline was absent for much of the game, none of the characters showed any signs of a personality, and the level design was virtually the same everywhere. In this sequel the storyline is much meatier, the characters have a personality, and the level design and visual settings are much more varied. It improves on everything I did not like in the first game yet keeps the same gameplay elements as before.

A great improvement and direction from the original. The writing and humor is great, the new character classes are a blast and as always, great to play with a team of co-op buddies.

Can drag at some points, but can be a total blast at others. What will keep you going through the lower parts is constant hunger for bigger, bladder guns. You will always find new toys to play with, and that's the best part. This games brings out the loot whore in all of us.

Its funny, raunchy, rude, immature, and sort of boring, but if you can deal with that the mechanics work fine, the level gap playing with higher level friends kinda breaks the game though.

Borderlands 2 is more of the same, if the same contained 97.5% more wubs, improved in every way, and had a decent story! If you like shooters, massive arsenals, and RPGs, then this is the game for you! Gun variety is better than ever, I even found a shotgun that explodes into smaller shotguns that chase enemies, while shooting, and explode even more! And that was just when RELOADING. All in all, a great game with tons of replay value, and a must-have for anybody with an Xbox 360.

 Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons - Xbox 360
"One of the sweetest games I have ever played. Unique controls but with an amazing story that will touch any gamer. The best way to play is sharing the controller with the partner. My girlfriend and I laughed and cried together. Brother's is a master piece, all gamers need to experience." - pottsy69

 Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway - Xbox 360
"Head shot city right here. Flank and head shot. Pop up and head shot. Head shot or get shot. Less arcade feel but just as fun. I loved the slower pace, the sound and overall story. Worth a hit out." - pottsy69

 Brink - Xbox 360
"Pretty and fast paced FPS but it gets the same very quickly. Having 2 campaigns was good and I liked the classes but in the end it got very samey, very quickly. Mulitplayer was fun but not many played it. Another average FPS in the end." - pottsy69

 Double Dragon II - The Revenge - NES
"Compared to its predescessor, a far, far more forgiving game. Finally you have 2 player co-op, but it's manageable even on solo. The move repertoire was now complete from the very start allowing time for practice, and introduced several new attacks including the helicopter area kick, and the uppercut & knee kick supers. It had a wierd quirk where buttons switched function depending which direction you faced, but understandably the more popular of the NES era games as it was fun AND finish-ableā€¦" - leaon79s

 Double Dragon - NES
"Ah, arguably the original Beat'em up. You have to go through the main campaign solo as there is no co-op, but also includes a 2 player VS mode. It distinguished itself in how objects in the environment could be picked up and used as weapons, a concept carried over to future popular 16-bit titles of the ilk. The move repertoire was built through levelling up as you attacked enemies. Tip: Punch rather than kick, it gets new moves faster. Pretty fun but hard-as. To this day I still haven't beat it." - leaon79s
